LAX Integrated Express Solutions (LINXS) consortium, of which Bombardier Transportation is a member with a 10% share, finalized a contract with Los Angeles World Airports to design, build, finance, operate, and maintain an automated people mover (APM) system at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The total contract is valued at approximately $4.9 billion.

LINXS has attributed two contracts to joint ventures (JVs): one for the design-build portion and one for the operations and maintenance portion. The JV in charge of the design and build portion has awarded a contract to Bombardier valued at approximately $219 million. In addition, Bombardier has a 55% share in the operations and maintenance JV, which was awarded a contract valued at $576 million. The financial close of this public-private partnership contract follows an announcement made by Los Angeles World Airports on February 15 selecting LINXS as the Recommended Developer, and contract signature in April.

Bombardier will be responsible for the design and supply of 44 Bombardier Innovia APM 300 vehicles, signaling, and onboard and wayside communication systems, and will lead a joint venture that will provide operations and maintenance services for the system and related facilities for a 25-year period, following completion of the construction.

Bombardier has been designing, building, operating, and maintaining automated transit systems for airports and cities around the world for nearly 50 years. The company’s Innovia APM 300 vehicles, utilizing the highly-proven Bombardier CITYFLO 650 automatic train control system, represent the latest generation of driverless APM technology.

LAX is the fifth busiest airport in the world, and second busiest in the U.S. The new APM system is one component of the airport’s Landside Access Modernization Program. The system will run on a 2.25-mile elevated dual-lane guideway with six stations and create new connections between the airport, public and private transportation, and a new consolidated rental car facility. The system will be built using a public-private partnership contracting model, the first automated people mover system to be procured this way in the U.S.

In addition to Bombardier, the LINXS consortium is comprised of ACS Infrastructure Development Inc., Balfour Beatty Investments Inc., Fluor Enterprises Inc., and HOCHTIEF PPP Solutions North America Inc.
